You can fill out the description field for your fields (HTML is possible). This description appears on every edit screen.


I'll clarify my question more.

what I have is a custom field which contains list of values.

Now what I want is to have a tool tip for each of the possible list values.



You could do it by using jQuery. JQuery can be used in description field of your custom field.

<script ....>

// get values

// for each value add a hint
